1M50 CPF millionaire in 2021!

Ever since the CPFB introduced a colorful pie chart of our CPF savings a few years ago, I would look forward to mine every year like a teena...

Past blog posts now load week by week. The old style created a problem for some as the system would load 50 blog posts each time. Hope the new style is better. Search archives in box below.

This is going to be a short blog to touch base with readers.

Quick update, basically, to let folks know I am alive and kicking (butts in virtual worlds.)

I have been busy gaming in Neverwinter and Genshin Impact but, mostly, I am spending time playing RISK Global Domination now.

That is the ultimate time killing game as one game could go on for hours just like the board version of the game!

Anyway, for readers who are not just following my blog but also my blog's comments section, they would know that I am still around as I reply to comments usually within 24 hours.

For readers who are following my baby YouTube channel, they would also know that I am still around as since my last blog in middle August, I have uploaded 5 videos.

My videos are more like audio books which last a minute or so which means you don't have to watch them, only listen.

For examples:

It is pretty easy to produce such videos.

If you are interested in the other recent videos, hop over to my YouTube channel: AK's channel.

The world is in a mess now and everybody is hurting one way or another.

Just remember that no one cares more about our money than we do.

Stay prudent with money.

As long as we are invested in bona fide income generating assets and as long as we are investing more and speculating less, we should do better than most people.


1. CPF money not our money?

2. Lost $300K staking crypto...

Hi AK, ...what have I missed... didn't know you have a YouTube channel! Great, have just subscribed to your channel. Cheers 🍻

Hi Sandra,

Hehehe... I have had a YouTube channel since 2010 but didn't do much with it.

Too lazy to juggle both the blog and YouTube especially when I was spending so much time blogging already.

Then, I got so busy when I started a Facebook page which, of course, I have decided to put in cold storage.

I came across some videos on YouTube which were more like audiobooks earlier this year and decided to experiment. ;p

Hope you enjoy the videos (AKA audiobooks.) :D

1. Financially free and facebook free.
2. Retirement and YouTube channel.

Hi Ak,

May i know where u normally see local stock news? Do you use any particular app?

AK71 said...

Hi AC,

The Business Times and The EDGE are good sources.

I also visit official websites of the businesses I am vested or interested in.

Good businesses are usually very timely and transparent in posting updates in the IR department.

Hi AK,

Maybe you will like conquerclub dot com. It is also a Risk based game with a lot of themed maps to play around. Turn based or real-time also have. Solo or team games also have. I play mostly turn-based. Sound me out if you like to team up :)

AK71 said...

Hi Rellangis,

Thank you! :D

That sounds very interesting and I will keep it in mind.

Over the weekend, I started playing Fallout Shelter.

Oh my, it is so good and I am enjoying it too much. LOL.

So, it might be a while before I start another game. ;p

Dear AK, the "Recent comments" widget on the web version of your blog seem to be down.

Hi KC,

I just checked.

It shows up on my screen.

Maybe, refresh the page and see if it works later?

KC said...

Thanks AK.I can see it now. Don't wana miss any sharings :)

AK71 said...

Hi KC,

I am a dinosaur and very low tech.

If the problem had persisted, I would not have known what to do. ;p

Happy the issue resolved itself. :)
